Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, has declared that Jesus Christ is his “Redeemer” and has indicated that he knows he will have to “pay” for his false teachings.
In a video released Tuesday, while reflecting on his inevitable death, the 84-year-old religious teacher said, “I thank God for guiding me for forty years absent my teacher [Elijah Muhammad]. So my next journey will have to answer the question. I’m gonna say it: I know that my redeemer liveth.”
He emphasized, “I know. I’m not guessing that my Jesus is alive. I know that my redeemer liveth and because he lives I know that I, too, will pass through the portal of death yet death will not afflict me.”
In his message, Farrakhan also appears to acknowledge that his teachings as the leader of the Nation of Islam come with a price. He said, “I say to the devil, I know I gotta pay a price for what I’ve been teaching all these years. You can have the money, you can have the clothes, you can have the suit, you can have the house but, me, you can’t have.”
After 40 years of devoting his fiery speeches and teaching to propagate Islam, Louis Farakhan, states Jesus is his redeemer!
In his own weblog: https://www.noi.org/hon-minister-farrakhan we read:
The Nation of Islam under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the catalyst for the growth and development of Islam in America. Founded in 1930 by Master Fard Muhammad and led to prominence from 1934 to 1975 by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Nation of Islam continues to positively impact the quality of life in America.
Christians everywhere should pray for Farrakhan that he would fully see the light of Jesus Christ and lead those who follow him out of the darkness of dead, false religion.
Reflecting on this amazing storey, Dan Calabresee writes in Canada Free Press:
“It’s always wise to be circumspect about a single statement someone makes, no matter how earth-shaking it may appear to be. If Farrakhan has decided to profess Christ as Lord, that’s absolutely wonderful, but you’d expect he’d expound upon it in future statements or interviews. He’d explain how and why he came to that decision. He’d address all the reasons people find this surprising and explain how he came to make this profession.
Another head-scratcher for me is that you didn’t get a lot of stunned gasps out of his congregation. Either they totally missed what he was saying, or they’ve heard this before and they know there’s more to it than meets the eye. The two guys behind him sort of looked like, “What did he just say?” But it wasn’t the kind of reaction you’d get if, say, Barack Obama decided to become a Republican. And really, Louis Farrakhan becoming a Christian would be that enormous a development.
I hope it’s true. I understand how many of you will feel about Farrakhan and the things he’s done, but if Scripture says the Lord wants everyone to come to redemption (and it does), then I am not going to go against God. Let’s pray that whatever openness to Jesus this represents turns into full-throated repentence and acceptance that He is Lord.”
This is very encouraging news for us, Iranians! FCNN’s editorial board prays that one day, after 40 years of rule of the Ayatullah’s in Iran, many learned and truly God fearing Ayatollahs, will acknowledge that Jesus is their redeemer, their eternal life !
